Partial List of Clients
In 1996, George Mateljan sold Health Valley Foods because he felt that after over 25 years he had already inspired a number of others to establish companies producing convenient, good tasting, health food products. He believed that it was time to turn his energies and resources toward the next phase of helping people enjoy eating healthy foods. He thought about the fact that he had published five cookbooks celebrating the joys and benefits of health eating, including the bestsellers: Cooking without Fat and Baking Without Fat, which showed how to prepare good tasting foods without adding oil during the heating or cooking process. Oil was only added in moderation after cooking or baking to add moisture and flavor to recipes. Millions of people read and used George’s books, which means he was able to share the many benefits of his discoveries and experience with others.
George recognized that these books have served as a reference point for many people who are looking for good tasting ways to eat healthy. He decided to apply the idea of providing a reference for people looking for good tasting, convenient ways to eat health foods and establish a not-for-profit Foundation with that sole purpose. That’s why his latest healthy gift is World’s Healthiest Foods. It is a 5 color 880 page book that shows readers the best way to shop, store and cook the world’s healthiest foods in 15 minutes or less, without cooking the nutrition out. The book has sold over 100,000 copies and is the most successful book in the history of Midpoint Distribution.
The Foundation is committed to providing the latest scientific information about the foods and nutrients needed for good health. But equally important, you’ll not only find out which foods are the world’s healthiest, you can also get personalized information about how to prepare those foods so they fit your timetable and lifestyle. You’ll find recipes and food preparation methods that make the World’s Healthiest Foods quick and easy to prepare, and also taste delicious. George welcomes you to interact with him and the Foundation by asking questions, sharing ideas and even supporting the cause of the Foundation.
George is now finishing up the 2nd edition of The World’s Healthiest Foods and should be out in bookstores by late Spring.
Michael T. Murray, N.D.
Dr. Murray is one of the world’s leading authorities on natural medicine. He has published over 30 books featuring natural approaches to health.

The Science Behind DoctorMurray.com
For the past thirty years, Dr. Murray has been compiling a massive database of original scientific studies from the medical literature. He has personally collected over 60,000 articles from the scientific literature, which provide strong evidence on the effectiveness of diet, vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other natural measures in the maintenance of health and the treatment of disease. It is from this constantly expanding database that Dr. Murray provides the answers on health and healing on DoctorMurray.com.
According to Dr. Murray
“One of the great myths about natural medicines is that they are not scientific. The fact of the matter is that for most common illnesses there is greater support in the medical literature for a natural approach than there is for drugs or surgery.”
— Dr. Michael Murray
Unfortunately, many people are not aware of the natural approach that can put them on the road to lifelong health. Dr. Murray has dedicated his life to educating physicians, patients, and the general public on the tremendous healing power of nature. In addition to his books, which have cumulative sales of over four million copies, Dr. Murray has written thousands of articles, appeared on hundreds of radio and TV programs, and lectured to hundreds of thousands of people nationwide.

- Glucosamine sulfate
- St. John’s wort extract
- Ginkgo biloba extract
- Enteric coated peppermint oil
- Saw palmetto berry extract
